Re: Not sure this is in right place, need guidance

Re: Pens in trailer

50/50 is the width of your trailer split in half say 7ft wide trailer u get 3.5ft wide pens so a 60/40 is 60% of the trailer width and 40% of the width so u have some bigger pens and smaller pens from what I see once they get up to 250 or so u can comfortably get one pig per pen.

Re: Draminski numbers

I have seen changes in their numbers as this happens b...
